Glenn us to be one of my best friend growing up.
We raced slot cars, minibikes, shot bb guns in his basement, made candles and all sorts of stuff. Glenn taught me how to ride a motorcycle on his 1969 Honda Minitrail and SL70. We rebuilt a Bultaco 100CC dirt bike together. That came out nice.
I remember when Glenn was learning how to drive, I was his licensed driver. We pulled up to a light and Glen decided to move up his drivers seat while stepping on the brake. The seat moved forward, and glens foot locked up the brake right in front of a cop cap, he pulled us over. We explained what happened. The cop laughed and said be careful next time.
I remember he had a room set up in a spare bed room that was the stereo listening area. Glenn had a supre stereo. I remember his Ampzilla amps and Micro Seiki turntable. We use to listen to Gentle Giant then some 80s electric stuff.
Glenn use to play the drums. He had a sparkle gold zimbar drum set. If he kept playing he might have gotten good.
Glenn use to like to party, maybe too much.
Glenn bought a black 1980 BMW 320S. We use to go to Paterson in the clubs, there was a girl named Honey who really liked him. She would dance when we had the band. That was interesting to say the least.
Glenn said he had a heart problem about 12 years ago. We really didn’t believe him, I guess he really did.
Well, getting old stinks, dying is worse.
I'll mis seeing him.
Message to Glenn- Glenn save me a spot, I'll look for you when I get there.
RIP- John Feane
